Aura Wellness Center Yoga Class Policies
There are to be no shoes on the studio floor. Please leave them outside the studio door.
Please leave negative energy at the door. The atmosphere in the Yoga studio should be one of tranquility.
Be conscious of your neighbor on the next mat.
Please do not wear strong perfumes or colognes to Yoga class.
If you are pregnant, please let the teacher know. You should seek training with a Prenatal Yoga specialist.
Keep your body clean. It bothers all of us, if we have to remind a student of this.
Cell phones are to be turned off. If this is not possible, you will be unable to participate in the class.
Wear comfortable clothes that do not bind at the waist or knees when you sit down.
Do not eat a large meal or drink a lot of liquid before Yoga – an empty stomach is most comfortable.
Please arrive a few minutes before class; if this is your first visit, please arrive 15 minutes ahead of class, so we may check you in and acquaint you with the space.
Once the class has begun, there will be no admittance into the Yoga studio. The studio doors will be locked once class starts. Arriving late creates a disturbance to both the students and instructor. Alternately, we request that if you attend class – you do not leave prior to its conclusion, as this is also a disturbance.
Some mats are available for you to use – as well as blocks, straps, and blankets.
If you have special physical issues, please consult with your teacher before class, and take care of yourself during class.
